Ireland out of the woods with the worst of Storm Eleanor, but experienced some terrible flooding and thousands of power outages as Eleanor battered its shores yesterday. 

On the heels of Storm Dylan, Storm Eleanor roared over Ireland yesterday (Tuesday) with winds over 80 mph

An orange status wind warning (the second highest level) was issued by Met Éireann for counties Clare, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Leitrim, Limerick, Mayo, and Sligo from 10pm Tuesday, remaining in place until 2pm today (Wednesday).

Much of the rest of Ireland had a status yellow warning, with winds of up to 68 mph. 

And Ireland's ESB Networks said at least 55,000 customers were without power as of Tuesday night, mostly due to fallen trees and flooding. 

Galway caught the worst of Eleanor, with winds of up to 86 mph recorded at Mace Head.
